Canned Food For Your Deep Pantry
Canned Food For Your Deep Pantry by Ken Jorgustin – Modern Survival Blog
Canned food may fill a big gap in food storage preparedness because they have a number of good attributes:
– They come in a wide variety of food groups.
– Available at all grocery stores.
– Easy to store on your deep pantry shelves.
– A pretty good shelf life.
– None of them technically need to be cooked prior to consumption.
This makes canned foods one of the quickest and easiest ways to store some food ahead for preparedness.
I am not discounting OTHER foods and their own unique packaging & processing, rather I’m saying that canned food is simply… simple. It’s one aspect of an overall food storage plan.
CANNED FOOD GROUPS
Food storage diversification is important! If and when you actually need to access your deep pantry during a time of disruption, SHTF, or whatever… you WILL be glad that you have a variety of foods!
This will satisfy the sweet tooth. Plus, a serving of fruit each day is good for you. Things like peaches, pears, oranges, mandarins, strawberries, blueberries, cherries. You name it and it’s probably available in a can.
Vegetables are nutritionally good for you and compliment just about any meal. Consider green beans, corn, carrots, spinach, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, variety packs…
You can get some pretty good calories and protein from canned pinto beans, kidney beans, garbanzo, navy, black beans and black eyed peas. A variety of canned ‘baked beans’ in their sauce will add up in the calorie department (an important consideration for ‘survival’).
CANNED SOUPS & STEWS
Soups and “Cream of ‘xyx’ soups” go a long way towards complimenting some foods (think ‘rice’ for example). There are plenty of stews available which are meals of themselves.
